Here's a few random cards that I've made in the last week that I didn't get a chance to post before. What do you think?
This card was made using a Black Magic technique. I stamped white craft/pigment image and once dry, dipped my prismas directly into the gamsol & colored onto the black cardstock. It made the colors a little more vibrant than I'm used to, hence the Black Magic title, I guess. I made the background paper using single flower stamped multiple times.
This second one was made in the same fashion, but I used a Penny Black image instead. The sentiment on the sign the Hedgie is holding was handwritten after the image dried.
This was for a sketch challenge. Love the image. I got it as an extra through the PayItForward thread. I paired some very old SU designer paper (white/red plaid) with some new bright and bold ladybug paper.
This is one of the larger stamps I have. Never sure how to work on them. Because of it's size, this card is the 5x5 size. I loved coloring this image. Half way through I wanted to change the flower to a purple color - okay, will do that on the next one I stamp. I used water colors and prismas with gamsol for the colors to get it 'just right'.
I love the way this card turned out. I have this funky stamp that is shaped like a paint swirl & I stamped in a lighter blue first, then the image was stamped in Versafine with a darker blue. Simple as that. Yet look how great it looks.
These next 2 cards were made using a technique involving Lumiere paint, Pearl ex, acetate. For the correct instructions, feel free to check this out: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=380530&page=3
Make sure you go to the FIRST post in the thread for directions. Because I didn't have Lumiere paint, the closest thing I had was Mod Podge. I mixed this with the pearl ex in Pearl, gold and bronze to get this Fall feel, and then stippled each individually onto the acetate. LONGEST 3 hours just waiting for it to dry. I ended up running the layer of cardstock below the acetate through the Cuttlebug that had been stamped with rust ink just to make some of the leaves stand out a bit more. I'm SO loving this thick chocolate satin ribbon, how about you? Did pretty much the same thing on the second card, just used a different folder for the Cuttlebug. I ended up with the shimmer side face up when I embossed it. I'd do it differently next time, painted side would go down.
I have this image in a smaller version that I got from the Pay It forward thread but liked it so much that I went out and got the larger version. I used the SU Parisian designer paper & split it in half & flipped one half over to coordinate.
Well, that's just about caught me up ... Thanks for taking the time to peek at my Blog. Come back soon.
